History of Innocent Smoothies

Innocent Smoothies, founded in 1999 by Richard Reed, Adam Balon, and Jon Wright, emerged from a market stall in London with a mission to make natural, healthy drinks accessible to all. Fueled by their playful branding and commitment to using only pure, sustainably sourced ingredients, the company rapidly grew into a beloved household name in the UK and beyond. Their range expanded from smoothies to include juices, coconut water, and plant-based milks, with a focus on ethical business practices and environmental sustainability. In 2013, Coca-Cola acquired a majority stake in the company, allowing Innocent to further expand its reach while maintaining its dedication to health, taste, and social responsibility.
